Happy, Beautiful Fall, to you all!! ♥  It is beautiful here, by Lake Huron.  The colors are really starting and our temps are in the cool Fall range now.
Isn't this a spectacular display of beauty by Mother Nature!  We were doing a bit a yard work and I ran and got the camera....My Mom passed quite a while ago....she was a professional artist specializing in watercolors, oils and pottery...when I see a sky like this, I always say "Thank You, Mom!" and blow her a kiss.  I think of her as Mother Nature's artist in residence!  How I miss matter how old I get to be, a day will not go by that I do not think of her! ♥

This Christmas Cactus sits in my kitchen window...I have had it for three years and each year I mean to repot it, but it seems happy, so happy, in fact, that it blooms a couple of months early!  lol!
Click on the pictures to see them better with more detail...these buds are so pretty....a gorgeous bright pink!
Ornaments I have been painting .....

And more to do....these will be part of a nice order I  received....busy, busy, busy time of the year! The finished ornaments can be found at THE RUFFLED ROSE along with other holiday items ~ New items each week!

I am joining Beverly for   Pink Saturday
Cindy for  Show And Tell Friday;

Be happy, happy, happy!

Hello Friends ~ I hope you are having a lovely Fall day.  It is 73 degrees here in my little corner of Michigan.  Just beautiful! So perfect for cleaning the gardens and planting bulbs....I have done both and it feels so good to be ready when winter blows in!  Of course, the leaves have yet to fall and we will have days of raking them. : )
And, I have been busy painting
A sweet heart to display or to use as a drink trivet ~
And some Halloween fun with this cones to hang among your decor ~

All of the above and lots more at The Ruffled Rose
